Re: who is the best star wars actor

Lando Griffin,
but seriously....Billy Dee and Harrison.
Jeremy Bulloch nuanced performance, was incredible. his subtle movements and onscreen demeanor
are some of the reasons we r having this conversation.

Re: who is the best star wars actor

Harrison Ford by far. Not just because he is one of the only ones to survive the series without a stereotypical role, but because he is an amazing actor. Without him, I don't know if episode 4 would have been as successful. Plus, nothing will ever beat his improv frantic "Everything's fine, we're all fine... how are you?"

I happen to be one of those people. I think his acting was horrendous. He resembled an angry child who wants a toy more than a soon-to-be Sith lord.

i agree, w/out Harrison Ford- the original trilogy could have been really flat. Some of Harrisons improvs have been cinematic gold.
leia in ESB: "i love you"
Harrisons improv: "I know."

i think the prequels needed a scoundrel character- obi wan was sort of that role but nothing close to Solo or Lando.

Re: who is the best star wars actor

For me it is Harrison Ford, Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Re: who is the best star wars actor

definitely the OT cast. Guiness, Cushing, Ford, Prowse, Williams, all them. out of the PT, Lee, McDiarmid (you can't really judge him based on the original trilogy, cuz he was only in one movie), Neeson, Jackson.

Maybe, maybe not. Please give a reason why you think what I said was racist? I do not take being called a racist very lightly. There was no abuse, there was retaliation!

Fetterthanyou already covered this... This is definitely NOT the place to be having this conversation. Do it over private messages.

Very true, especially the part about the new trilogy needing a 'Solo-esk' character.  I think we saw in the new trilogy what the old one might have looked like without Ford/Solo.

For the new Trilogy I got to go with:

Neeson *Qui-Gon*  *Love his acting style and pressence, his role in Kindom of Heavon was great, if short*
McGregor
Lee
and Temuera Morrison, both for his acting as Jango and his voice work and acting for the clones

In the Old Trilogy:

Harrison Ford
James Earl Jones
Mark Hamill *a little whinny at times and a little TOO crushed when he found out Vader was his father, but otherwise pretty good job*
Guiness
and of course Jeremy  smile

Re: who is the best star wars actor

' Aye! big_smile

You're foolish words can never hurt me

Re: who is the best star wars actor

I knew I would miss some. I always get reminded of others that are really funky.

Here are some others that I think are excellent:

James Earl Jones
Peter Cushing
Billy Dee Williams
Samuel L Jackson
Christopher Lee
Ian MacDiarmid
Liam Neeson
Jeremy Bulloch (anyone who can turn a character that was supposed to be incidental into what he is now is great big_smile )

Re: who is the best star wars actor

i might have to give him a hug. only had he not cut off my hand before i found out. and if anyone has seen Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing's old horror movies from the 30s-70s (Lee was usually the monster and Cushing the hero), then you rock (like i do). lucky me, i have a tv channel that plays horror movies all day and they come on every now and then.

Re: who is the best star wars actor

My big three are Harrison Ford, Jeremy Buloch, and David Prowse they were all so convincing.
